What happens when you use regular oil instead of synthetic oil in 2007 dodge ram v6


nothing
synthetic oil is good but it has the same problem as ordinary oil
the additives in the oil are all used up and no longer do what they are there for
neutralizing acidity from combustion
keeping moisture in suspension,retaining tensile strength in the oil film and a host of other additives used to promote longer engine life
regular oil is cheaper so more regular oil changes can be afforded( every 5000 miles )
forget the myth that oil doesn't have to be changed for 12 months or 20000 miles
oil is the most vital component in an engine so changing often is for longer engine life
as a point of interest , when you pull into a shop for a service the oil you will get is ordinary engine oil because if synthetic oil was used , you would scream at the bill and not go back there unless you specifically ask for synthetic oil
simple economics and business sense
more costly than anywhere else = no business

Does the 2005 chevy malibu use synthetic oil


Hi, you should use energy conserving oil from Mobil One or ELF synthetic that comes from a container stating, "designed for use in GM vehicles". You will save money on gas, on oil changes, sludge will NOT form inside the engine, and everything will last longer.

I have 101,000 miles on my Trailblazer and the last time I had an oil change they wanted to put in synthetic oil......nothing in the owners manual about doing this......should I change or keep using the...


its mostly personal preferance.. your trailblazer doesnt call for synthetic so if you dont want to spend the extra cash i would just get a decent brand 5w30 or 10w30

What kind of oil do i use for a 2000 dodge carivan?


ENGINE OIL

You will need to use a 10W-30 grade engine oil, such as any of the following Mobil products.
"Fully synthetic" oils are more expensive. Conventional oils or syn blend engine oils are fine for the vehicle but need to be changed more frequently.

Mobil 1 Extended Performance 10W-30
fully synthetic motor oil ;

How often should oil be changed ?


That depends on the brand and type of synthetic you use, as well as the type of oil filter. Mobil 1 makes an extended service full synthetic, which they claim is good for 15,000 miles between changes. Amsoil full synthetic advertises 25,000 miles between changes; but only if you also install and use one of their super fine bypass oil filters, in addition to your car's regular oil filter.

Since the actual mileage you can go between oil changes is very dependent of the type of driving you do, the brand of oil you use, and the condition of your engine; there really is no hard and fast rule. That's why commercial vehicle fleets regularly take samples of their oil, and send it to laboratories for analysis to determine whether it needs changing. Sometimes it is necessary to change oil more often than expected; other times you can go longer between changes. My experience has been that, when oil is nearing the mileage where it needs changing; the rate of consumption will significantly increase. So when my car needs a quart added, it usually means it ought to be changed.

Regardless of the oil you use; if the change intervals are longer than the car manufacturers recommendations, it will void your factory engine warranty. That said; I have typically felt comfortable with 7,500 mile change intervals when using full synthetic oil of an appropriate viscosity.

I would also add that it is much safer to stay with only one brand and type of oil for the life of your vehicle; this is true for both conventional and synthetic oils. I have seen too many engines ruined by switching to a different brand or type of oil. Mobil 1 is chemically different from all the other synthetic oils, and is closer to petroleum oil in its characteristics. I prefer it for that reason. They also make a european formula 0W-40 full synthetic, which is available in the U.S, and is my preferred viscosity for all around use. It is not one of their extended service oils; but the protection is far superior to other oil grades. Not all stores carry it; but it can often be ordered from stores which carry other Mobil 1 products; and can always be bought from the local Mobil oil distributor.

What kind of oil can i use in my 1999 gs 300 is synthetic oil better or jus use regular oil which do u perfer?


Synthetic oil is better than carbon based oil because it is cleaner,lasts longer,more efficient & wont leave carbon build up like conventional oil. But if you ran regular oil for quite awhile, your engine will have carbon build up. Synthetic oil breaks up the buildup. That is good. Bad thing is sometimes that buildup is keeping you from leaking or burning oil. If you switch to synthetic oil keep an eye on oil consumption. If you start using or leaking it out of gaskets or seals, you will need to get it out & put in regular oil. If not, you can go longer between oil changes & your engine will run more efficiently for a longer period of time.

What oil is used for an 06 scion xa?


Recommended oil is 5W30. You can go one step better by using a synthetic 5W30 oil. It may a bit more expensive than conventional oil but it will extend the life of your car's engine (as long as oil changes are done on a regular basis). Cheers!

Oil change


I would contact a dealer and ask them. But also you might just use the same oil so you don't chance it....
